came during a hearing on u.s. security threats. janet napolitano and the fbi associate director also testified. this is an hour and 50 minutes. >> the hearing will come to order. good morning to all. this is our annual, our committee's annual home lapd threat assessment hearing -- homeland threat assessment hearing. i want to welcome back janet napolitano, secretary of department of homeland security, and matt olsen, and the associate deputy director, kevin perkins, who is standing in for director bob mueller today. the director had to undergo unexpected surgery resulting from complications associated with recent dental treatment. he's unable to join us today. but we welcome mr. perkins in his stead. we with confidence we extend best regards to the director for a speedy recovery. this will be the final time that i have the privilege of chairing this annual hearing, so i want to use this opportunity to thank each of you for your leadership in our nation's homeland security and counterterrorism efforts through you to thank those who work with you in each of your departments or agencies
that was not enough to warrant an investigation. there was nothing the fbi could point to which would single him out for special investigation or attention. was this an intelligence failure in wisconsin? >do you think there could have been things done to prevent this attack that were not done? >> i think the fbi late at where the problem was. they're really good at investigating after the fact, after things happen, but we had a delicate balance between people's constitutional right to assemble and express their speech, however weil, but we also have to be board cleaning and look at ideologies that have long histories of -- forward- looking and the ideologies that have long histories of spawning violence. i'm not talking about doing covert operations and people with extremist police, but i think it is important we have an overt monitoring police system on what is causing people to act of violence may. was this an intelligence failure? i do not think it is. but one thing the department of homeland security and the fbi could have done -- where was the warning the that sikhs and muslims have been victim
stevens and three other u.s. diplomats were killed on tuesday. we're told by the fbi that a full scale investigation has started, but, the reports are they are still having trouble getting their feet on the ground, inside the country. it, of course is also, an insecure situation. but, they do have support on the ground, 50-man-strong team of marine rapid response fighters. off the coast, one u.s. navy destroyer, and, overhead, surveillance drones, too. and in that country, jamie, the libyan government, too, is saying they want to help and there are new reports the past 24 hours, more individuals have been rounded up and seen at the scene of that killing. but, again, questions about how committed and how able they are to help from a lot of people. back to you. >> jamie: as many as 20 countries seeing violence and protests, thanks, greg palkot in tunisia. >> eric: meanwhile, secretary of state hillary clinton has been working the phones this weekend. calling top officials from 7 countries, to discuss the growing demonstrations. can the u.s. and the leaders of those nations stop this cris
-qaeda leader. what do we know? >> we are obviously investigating this very closely. the fbi has a lead in this investigation. the information the best information and the best assessment we have today is that in fact this was not a preplanned premeditated attack. that what happened initially was that it was a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired in cairo as a consequence of the video. people gathered outside the embassy and then it grew very violent and those with extremist ties joined the fray and came with heav heavy weapos which unfortunately are quite common in post revolutionary libya and that then spun out of control. we don't see at this point signs this was a coordinated plan premeditated attack. we will wait for the results of the investigation and don't want to jump to conclusions before then. i think it is important for the american people to know our best current assessment. >> chris: and the last question, terror cells in benghazi have carried out five attacks since april including one at the same consultate, a bombing at the same consultate in june, should u.s
's a coordinated effort by terrorists. fbi has sent a team to help with the investigation and a contingent of marines will boost security. lots of going on. >> reporter: president obama promises to bring the killers to justice. meanwhile the horrific events haven't stopped the presidential candidates from attacking one another. egyptian police clashed with demonstrators outside the u.s. embassy in cairo overnight. it's the latest in a wave of violence in egypt and libya that led to the deaths of u.s. ambassador to libya and three other americans. president obama promises the u.s. will find those responsi e responsible. >> i want to assure you we'll bring their killers to justice. >> reporter: investigators say stevens death was planned. . >> appears to be well-planned out. certainly this was more than just a protest gone bad but whether or not it was a premeditated al qaeda attack, i think is still to be determined. >> reporter: 50 marines are headed to libya to protect the embassy in tripoli and two war ships will be off the libyan coast. the impact of the event is not escaping politics
